Patient Comments (1)
in Jersey City, NJ |
I had spinal stenosis. Dr. Ratzker operated on me on Feb. 21,2017. I feel well and hardly any pain now. I was sent to a Rehab hospital for three weeks. I did not hear or see from Dr. Ratzner again after one bedside visit. That's why I did not give him five stars.
